Existential Challenges Facing Israel

August 31 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

An Iran with 60 kilograms of highly enriched uranium, who has denied inspection access to the International Atomic Energy Administration;  the rise and empowerment of an array of terrorist groups on Israel’s borders, many of which are terrorist proxies; the exonerating of terrorist groups who wage war against the citizens of Israel by lofty bodies such as the UN; the rise of cancel culture and wokeness on college campuses and the apparent efforts of the US to withdraw from the region: How does Israel handle all of these challenges and existential threats to its being?
